signals not working

Post by SmatZ » 28 Dec 2006 18:09

Just one interesting thing - I dont suppose it ever happens in reality.
If there is a really long distance between signals, they will just not work.
Including saves and screenshot. Tested with 0.4.8 and 0.5RC1, with and without YAPF.
Also, there is hardly anything to do with that, as computer doesn't have an unlimited memory.

Please start both locomotives and unpause the game. The samophore should go red on both sides, but it doesn't.

Hmmm ... does anybody know how long track have to be for this bug to occur?
If you need something, do it yourself or it will be never done.

My patches: Extra large maps (1048576 high, 1048576 wide) (FS#1059), Vehicle + Town + Industry console commands (FS#1060), few minor patches (FS#2820, FS#1521, FS#2837, FS#2843), AI debugging facility

Other: Very large ships NewGRF, Bilbo's multiplayer patch pack v5 (for OpenTTD 0.7.3)

very interesting, also does it with the latest nightly :?

what i'm thinking is if those signals are not there only on train whould leave the depot, so it knows theres a set of signals somewhere

furthest red signal 24 x 39
corner 24 x 396 DISTANCE = 357
train 689 x 396 DISTANCE = 665
TOTAL = 1023

or thereabouts...
